Labor condemns Bob Brown Foundation actions

Tasmanian Labor
  • Despicable actions against family sawmill
  • Labor stands with workers
  • Liberals and Greens cannot continue to agitate
  • Tasmanian Labor condemns the action taken by the Bob Brown Foundation against a family sawmill this morning.

    Shadow Minister for Primary Industries Shane Broad said the actions are despicable.

    “The actions taken by the Bob Brown Foundation this morning are completely unacceptable,” Dr Broad said.

    “They have targeted members of the community who are working to provide for their families and this action cannot be tolerated.

    “All the timber coming into this mill has been approved by the Greens and the environmental movement, however now it appears the Greens are walking away from an agreement they signed up to, only doing so because they’re desperate for relevance.

    “While the Liberals and Greens continue to stir up trouble they forget about the workers who are stuck in the middle.

    “Labor stands with the workers and backs the industry; this action must not continue.”
